Brainlab presents Mobile intraoperative imaging Robot at Arab Health 2020

The technology vastly increases the company's digital reach in spinal procedures

Brainlab presents Mobile intraoperative imaging Robot at Arab Health 2020

Dubai – Brainlab, the digital medical technology company, presented Loop-X™, the first mobile intraoperative imaging robot, at the Arab Health 2020 in Dubai, running from 27 through 30 January. Loop-X sits at the core of the Brainlab Digital Surgery portfolio for the rapidly evolving spinal market. Brainlab is leveraging its long history in 3D imaging and open integration to bring to market a new benchmark in automation and robotics helping surgeons provide advanced care while improving surgery for patients.

The Loop-X robotic architecture introduces a new standard in flexibility, adding additional degrees of freedom to any surgical procedure: By automating imaging workflow steps and robotically moving with the procedure and on command, the system is in sync with other devices like robotic arms and with the surgeon and staff. The non-isocentric movement and collimation capabilities allow for the imaging of structures that are much larger—for example in diameter—and much smaller—reducing radiation exposure—than what is possible with the typical CT or 3D C-arm.

The highly integrated device is designed for 2D and 3D imaging, combining ultra-high resolution with extra-low doses, and proprietary technology to image with interlaced energies for soft-tissue visualization. Loop-X imaging robot can be integrated with Brainlab technology as well as third party products through an open interface, maximizing interoperability and data integration.

“For Brainlab, Loop-X is a critical milestone in contributing disruptive innovations in spinal surgery,” said Stefan Vilsmeier, President and Chief Executive Officer, Brainlab.

“It provides us with an even stronger foundation for leveraging emerging technologies such as AI, big data, cloud computing, augmented reality and spatial computing.”

Part of the overarching Brainlab Digital Surgery portfolio, Loop-X imaging robot increases the depth and breadth of the company’s offering and supports excellence in a broad range of surgical applications. Building on the broad utility of X-ray-based 2D and 3D imaging in the O.R., Brainlab aims to provide a surgery-centric digital platform for every surgery. Beyond diagnostic imaging, the intelligent device can capture partial information, “digitizing” anatomical intraoperative changes in order to update a “digital model” of the patient previously generated by aggregating pre-operative images.

Loop-X imaging robot has been developed by medPhoton in close partnership with Brainlab. Brainlab has co-funded development, strategically invested in the Salzburg-based company, and become the exclusive distributor of Loop-X imaging robot in surgery, underscoring the company’s commitment to innovation. Both companies are fully dedicated to maximizing technological synergies for the ultimate benefit of surgeons and their patients and have agreed upon a path forward toward further deepening the collaboration and integrating their activities in the future.

During the exhibition, Brainlab also presents its Mixed Reality Viewer, which brings spatial computing into daily clinical practice for surgical plan review, medical student training and patient consultation.

Since the company’s first 3D C-arm integration, Brainlab has been a pioneer in the field of intraoperative imaging. The Brainlab open framework supports the company’s full range of imaging technologies, driving innovation and integration while ensuring that current customers will continue to reap benefits, in upgrades and software advancements, from their technology investments.
